With a season win-loss record of 4-12, are the Oakland Raiders management now having second thoughts about that much ballyhooed 10-year, $100 million contract they gave to Jon Gruden. We can just barely hear Al Davis’s faint exasperated whisper from the grave, “Just win, baby.”  

The loss to the 49ers seemed to epitomize the Raiders season. The 49ers with Nick Mullens, the third-string quarterback leading the way, defeated the Raiders 34-3. This was the third time this season that the Raiders failed to score a touchdown.  

To add insult to injury, Oakland has sued the Raiders for an alleged illegal move to Las Vegas. Now the team is searching for a place to play next season. 

Poor Oakland — the Raiders are moving to Las Vegas, the Golden State Warriors to San Francisco, and the Oakland Athletics are looking for a new stadium.
